Description

Shimano's Flagship 11-Speed Chain

The reigning champion of the Shimano 11-speed chain lineup, be it road or mountain. Decades of Japanese engineering and refinement have brought you the most technologically-advanced chain Shimano has ever delivered. The Shimano Dura Ace / XTR CN-HG901 11-Speed Chain features an asymmetric plate design and an ultra-low friction SIL-TEC surface treatment for higher performance and longer life.

SIL-TEC plating on the links and rollers makes for a chain that runs quieter, lasts longer, and sheds mud better than normal zinc-nickel plating. Hollow pins on the HG901 minimize weight, but the chain is still strong enough to handle the high-torque of electric motors for use in e-bike applications.

Features:

  • Shimano's highest end 11-speed chain
  • Quick link included
  • SIL-TEC Coating for improved chain life, durability, lube retention and shifting performance
  • For Shimano 11-speed road and mountain drivetrains (compatible with Dura-Ace, Ultegra, 105, XTR, XT and SLX)
  • Includes 11-Speed Chain Pin
  • Compatible with E-bike systems
  • Weight: 246 grams

    Expensive and hard for me to tell if its really worth it

    My grouppo is DA 9100. The chain works well and lasts me about 2500 - 3000 miles. It is expensive and its pretty hard for me to say it is definitely better than the Ultegra and even the 105 equivalents which can be purchased at a much lower price. On the 10 speed versions Shimano only makes one model and it states its for 105, Ultegra and DA. I try to buy the DA chain only when its on sale and usually buy several at the same time as I go thru 2 to 3 chains per year.

    Fantastic value on sale

    Bought the hg901 chain as a gift for my wife. Great value when bought on sale. If not I would have opted for Ultegra/XT. These are extremely durable long wearing chains when taken care of properly.

    like the dura-ace version on my ultegra gruppo - don't care about the weight just like smoother shifting on a pre-electronic system!

    Treat yourself to a nice chain

    Your chain is probably the first part to wear out on your bike, so why not treat yourself to a little weight-saving upgrade? These last a long time provided that you don't let them rust...which will happen if you ride in the rain with a dry lube that washes off. I dock Shimano a value rating star for packing it with their single-use Quicklink. You have to buy a reusable one separately if you need to take the chain off.

    Dependable and consistent chain

    Well worth the extra cost. This chain has always worked well for me. It pedals well, it shifts well, it has never broken a link on me.

    From personal experience I recommend it to anyone.

    This is an amazing option/upgrade. I am currently running this dura-ace chain with a 105 groupset and it works flawlessly. It also runs very smoothly and quiet as a waxed chain!

    Probably a sturdy choice

    It shifts just fine with the bike's Shimano 105 derailleurs. It's hard to be enthused about the a chain in this price range, but 11-speed chains generally seem to be pricey, and this one at least includes a quick link.

    I use an inline chain cleaner every 2-3 rides, and a wax-based lubricant (White Lightning Clean Ride). Despite this regimen, this chain acquires a surprising amount of dirt in just a few miles. It's almost as if it has some sort of coating that combines with the wax, and it just won't go away.

    Exactly what I needed for a great price.

    I used this 11-speed chain with FSA chainrings and Ultegra rear mech to replace my stretched one. The value is worth the upgrade for the weight weenies since it saves a few grams from the 105 or Tiagra chain with hollow pins and rollers. Comes with a quick link for easy installation.
